Ages: What Is Catch Me If You Can Like?
This bright and bouncy show features a topnotch cast and a sixties-influenced score by the Hairspray team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. Narrated by Frank as if his story is a television special, Catch Me draws audiences in to his web of relationships with his parents, FBI agent Hanratty and eventually his girlfriend and her parents. The show manages to walk the fine line of making Frank likeable in spite of his crimes. (From the show’s first scene, we know he’ll eventually pay for his misdeeds.) Whether or not you’ve seen Steven Spielberg’s hit movie based the same subject matter, if you enjoy a comic caper, Catch Me If You Can is the musical to see.
Is Catch Me If You Can Good for Kids?
Although Catch Me If You Can is not a classic "family show," there is nothing objectionable in the script and songs, and the musical's peppy vibe will appeal to school-age kids.
